Overview

Stupid Boy (New Adult Romance) by Cindy Miles

From Cindy Miles, bestselling new adult author of STUPID GIRL, comes the next installment of her addictive Stupid in Love series – STUPID BOY.

"Stupid Boy by Cindy Miles is everything I love about a new adult romance-- angsty, emotional and sexy. I couldn't stop reading!"
- NYT and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Hawkeye

Brax Jenkins and Olivia Beaumont are the most envied couple at Winston University—but the so-called “virginity dare,” orchestrated by Brax’s old fraternity, almost tore them apart. Now, a new dare is taking shape, and it’s sure to set emotions ablaze—more than ever before.

Winston’s “It Girl” Harper Belle isn’t just president of the Deltas—she’s also a master at keeping her ugly past a secret. So, when the Kappas’ dare hits closer to home for her more than anyone realizes, she devises a competition of her own as payback. Three sorority sisters will seek out a notorious womanizer on campus and—unbeknownst their “mark”—secretly train him to be the perfect boyfriend. Always up for a challenge, Harper targets the biggest player she can find: Brax’s wickedly handsome foster brother Kane McCarthy.

But, Harper discovers there’s much more to Kane than girls, games, and partying. His easy smile belies the quiet, old soul reflected in his deep brown eyes. All it takes is one night, one secret laid bare, and one kiss from Kane to shift Harper’s world on its axis. Suddenly, the girl who’s always walked a straight and narrow path can’t think of anything else except losing control.


"A raw, beautiful, poignant story about pain, heartache and first love. I couldn’t put it down.”
- Carly Phillips, NYT bestselling author, on STUPID GIRL

2.5 stars review: I was expecting to LOVE this book. I haven't read Stupid Girl yet but have heard great things about it. I read a few not-so-good reviews on Goodreads on Stupid Boy but I'm one of those that will still read a book, despite the rating. I was expecting more of this New Adult story but I still liked it—even though it lacked. In this story, we meet Harper, the good girl with almost no friends, just focused on studying and her sorority but she is seeking revenge for what was done to Olivia in Stupid Girl. Her plan is to get three boys from the Kappas to fall in love with three of her sorority girls and then get the boys' heart broken. The Characters Harper starts off seeming like a strong and confident girl even with her dark past. I was expecting to see this Harper throughout the whole story but I didn't. She turned into a whiny girl, always repeating that she wears a mask, that nobody knows/understands her. Once or twice to be mentioned is fine but over and over and over again? Not really. Still, I kept reading because I wanted to see the confident Harper we read about when the book started—I was disappointed. Kane is the bad boy that doesn't go to Harper's college but is Brax's foster-brother, whom readers met in Stupid Girl. I actually loved Kane. I didn't like the insta-love that appeared here but I still loved Kane, up until the point he kind of became a stalker. Once these two characters get together, I started liking Kane more than Harper once again. He was understanding and a charmer, for sure. His feelings for Harper were true and anybody could notice it. While I loved Murphy, Harper's friend, I hated how "British" she was. I love British people and their accent but in this story, the accent and slang words were...too much. The Story I loved how this story started off by giving a little bit of a background to Harper and Kane's past. The rest felt rushed and it lacked depth, especially for a New Adult story. It lacked emotions between all of the characters. I couldn't really decipher what the characters were feeling towards one another. I pretty much had to guess the emotions. Overall A semi-good story that lacked a lot but was at times enjoyable. I will be giving Stupid Girl a chance because the premise of the story sounds incredible and much more enjoyable. If you have read either/both of the books, leave a comment and tell me what you thought of it.

Book 1 was my favorite, but also fell in love with these characters. Wish we could have seen more of the story with them together.

Rating: 4.5/5 Stupid Boy follows the journey of Harper Belle and Kane McCarthy, two individuals who by chance get a second chance at life and love.  Stupid Boy is the second book in the Stupid in Love series by Cindi Miles, and having read the first book, I knew that it was not going to disappoint. The book follows up on what had transpired in Stupid Girl (book #1), with a whole new twist and different characters. This time, the story follows Harper Belle, president of the Deltas and a well known girl at Winston University. Apart from being the “It Girl” at her school, she is not what she seems to be. On the exterior, she is the studious girl and popular among her friends. But on the inside she has secrets that she can't tell anyone else, secrets that have taken a hold on her for a very long time. Now, she is determined to end the so-called “virginity dare,” that has brought a lot of chaos to the school and her sorority. With that said, she devises a plan to get back at the Kappas', and end the dare for good. She is going to seek out a notorious womanizer on campus and make him the perfect boyfriend, but she wasn't expecting to stumbled upon the good-looking Kane McCarthy, Brax's foster brother. After Brax participated in the last “virginity dare,” Kane becomes the perfect target to change, but the more she spend time with him, the more she realizes that her soul is just as broken as his, and that maybe he is the one she has been waiting for so long.  Kane McCarthy is not like his foster brother, instead he is the carefree brother that one would consider “the bad boy,” and he is advised by everyone to stay away from Harper Belle before he corrupts her. But the more he is told to stay away from the girl that caught his eyes the minute they met, the more he is intrigued to get to know her. He knows in his heart, that Harper is not the “It Girl,” that everyone knows, after all he has been through a lot in his life, and he can sense another lost soul around. So when they start to spend time together, he finds himself telling her secrets that even Brax doesn't know about his past, and he can't seem to get enough. I really enjoyed reading Stupid Boy, the characters were just as relatable as the ones in the first book (Stupid Girl), and I liked their background stories. Both characters have suffered a lot in their lives, and together they seem to complete each other. The story was a page-turner, and well-written. Cindi Miles does a great job keeping the story entertaining, and romantic. I would highly recommend reading Stupid Girl since the main characters from the first book do appear in this book, but they are just secondary characters. Overall, I would suggest reading Stupid Boy, you would not regret it. :) *ARC provided by the author through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

After loving Stupid Girl, I was excited to read Stupid Boy. With different characters as the focus, Stupid Boy can be read as a standalone, although I think reading Stupid Girl first will enhance your experience since the stories are connected.  This is probably going to sound morbid, but I do like reading realistic fiction where the characters are broken and need to work through their dark past in order to truly live. Stupid Boy makes me think about the saying, "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle." Kane sees that right away about Harper despite the outer image she's trying to project, and I think it's because he comes from a painful background, too.  Kane's experiences have given him the ability to see it in someone else, even someone he's just met. When both people have that in their past, they can understand each other in a way without words that other people may not be able to do. I think Harper was trying much harder and more desperately to repress the experiences she had been through, and that was why she didn't see past Kane's exterior shell right away. She wants to pack her pain in a suitcase and keep it in the back of a closet, away from her sight.  I wanted to know what had happened to both of these characters, and through bits and pieces here and there, you come to know what they went through. It's horrifying, and no one should have had to go through that.  I was happy to see Olivia and Brax from the first book in Stupid Boy. I really liked them and was hoping they'd be connected to the characters in this book, which they are.  The only thing that kept me from giving the book five stars was the story lulled in places. It might have been just me and my frame of mind at the time, but a few places were slow for me. Other than that, I really loved reading about Kane and Harper's story, and I'm looking forward to reading about new characters in the next installment. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Not as good as the first book in the series. Storyline seemed a little forced as it was identical to the first book but didn't have the chemistry of Brax & Olivia. The British roommate 's language was a bit annoying too. Just okay. But its a quick read.

Excellent read! This is a sequel to Stupid Girl. While it can be read standalone you'll really understand all the characters more if you read both books. Kane McCarthy is new on campus but his bad boy persona grabs the interest of Harper Belle, Winston's perfect girl. What they both want is to keep their ugly pasts firmly in the past. What they need is each other. This is an excellent story and the characters are incredibly intriguing. I definitely recommend this one.

*** I received a copy from TKA Distribution via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*** I was on the fence about reading this one, but after reading a review a friend did for it I decided to give it a go and am really happy that I did because I ended up loving Harper and Kane's story.  The reason why I was on the fence is because the blurb made it sound like the Dare was going to be the main focus of the story and I didn't know if I could handle that kind of angst, but that wasn't the case.  The Dare is in the background but the meat of the story is about two people recognizing that while on the outside they may come from different worlds, on the inside they are the same kind of broken and through that painful bond take steps towards healing themselves and each other. Both Harper’s and Kane’s back stories were so well crafted and executed that I could swear I felt what they went through.  The abuse and ultimate psychological ramifications of it all had me wanting to hug them both and try to fix them, but also had me admiring their will to survive and despite their pasts, were still both compassionate human beings.  Both took the path of painting on their own perfect façade so that no one would know the pain they hid and they would be able to shut anyone who tried to see past it out, but as it would happen, when two broken souls meet they end up recognizing each other and a bond is created.  What I really enjoyed was the way their relationship grew.  There was a sense of Insta Love, but they did go there right away.  They took their time to get to know each other and it be a much more sweet and romantic journey than I had thought it would be. The Dare, as I said I’m happy that this wasn’t the true focus of the book, but I am glad it was there because it was a great way of weaving a recap of what happened in Stupid Girl into the story without taking away from Harper and Kane’s story for both those who had read the book as well as give those of us who didn’t read the book so we don’t feel lost when those references and couple appear in the story. Overall I really did enjoy this story. I liked the author’s voice and writing style and I found that I was hooked from the first page and had a hard time putting it down.  There are a few things that I felt were left unanswered, so I do hope that the answers do come up in future books and I hope that Murphy gets more page time down the road because she was awesome!  So I’m going to be getting my hands on Stupid Girl to find out more about Brax and Olivia as well as keeping my eyes out for what’s to come next in the series.

Love this series! I read the first book, Stupid Girl at the end of last year and was excited and impatient for the release of Stupid Boy in February. I INHALED this book and I will be eagerly anticipating the third. I will admit, I was so in love with the characters Olivia and Brax from the first book that I was dissapointed to find out the book would focus on his brother Kane and Harper. Completely out did my expectations for the book and Im so glad Cindy Miles wrote it the way she did. In Love with this series!

A great follow-up to Stupid Girl. Kane is a bad boy and Harper Belle is the good girl that is going to reform him. Harper seems like she has it all together and is above everyone. Kane is a thug from Boston that has blown into town to run illegal gambling. Harper wants to make a good boy out of Kane and Kane wants to know Harper's secrets. This is a great read! While this is a stand alone novel readers will get to See Liv and Brax from Stupid Girl so if you haven't read it you may want to start there.

This is the first book I've read by Cindy Miles -- yes, I started series at the second book *hangs head in shame*. I was thrilled to realize that this book is perfectly fine as a stand alone. While there are some areas that relate back to the first book, I was comfortable that I didn't need to read it first to understand things. Olivia & Brax (Book 1) play a large enough part of the book that as a series lover (had I read book 1 first like I should have) I would have been satisfied with being able to continue their story. But this story is about Kane & Harper. So let's get down to it: Harper : She is a smart level headed 'rich girl' who is president of her sorority. She appears to have it all - a nice car, money, brains. No one knows that this is all a facade and beneath it she is nothing but secrets and lies. A broken little girl who has never recovered from her parents brutal murder years ago. Kane : He is our smoking hot bad boy who comes into town to run numbers in the frat house. He appears to be everything Harper needs in her quest to 'fix' a bad boy. Underneath it all is the broken little boy who lived a hard life bouncing between foster homes. While falling for Harper might make him wish he could give up his illegal activity, he has a deep secret reason for why he won't. I loved their back stories. Beneath the surface, our characters are broken and need some serious healing. Finding each other just might be the key to beginning their healing. I was drawn into their stories and felt that with their back stories, the author built them up to be such real characters. They broke my heart over and over with what they went thru and I was constantly cheering for them to find each other and a way to heal. I felt it was a well written book and I think you'll enjoy it. It has more depth than some romances which I enjoyed! I'm off to read Book 1 now because I want some more of the characters I was introduced to! :) ** Disclaimer : I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review. **
